NC State lands key in-state recruit: 4-star 2022 LB Torren Wright

NC State football hit the ground running on June 1; the Wolfpack continue to gather steam. On Tuesday, the Wolfpack struck a commitment from one of the top prospects in the state of North Carolina: 4-star 2022 linebacker Torren Wright.

Wright, a native of Kannapolis, is one of the top 250 prospects nationally; he ranks as the No. 7 overall prospect in North Carolina, per 247 Sports Composite.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound linebacker drew interest from plenty of programs; however, in the end, NC State won out over Duke, South Carolina, Kentucky and West Virginia.

The commitment from Wright was the second of the day for NC State. Earlier, the Wolfpack also landed 3-star athlete Daejuan Thompson, another in-state prospect.

Wright is the No. 2 rate prospect in NC State’s 2022 class, which now sits at five total; three hail from inside the North Carolina borders.
